Josef von Sternberg's legendary and ever-weird first collaboration with Marlene Dietrich is a historic early sound film, but there's no need to double-dip if you already own the DVD.
While by some measure creakier than the six Hollywood films that Von Sternberg and Dietrich collaborated on in its wake, The Blue Angel still laid down a solid template for their strange relationship.
| Original Score: 5/5
There are no extras, as such. For a film of this importance, you might have expected something.
